A sunken houseboat remains in the Mississippi River today, after a Memorial Day accident which sent the boat over Dam number 7 at Dresbach.

Winona County chief deputy Ron Ganrude says the houseboat was headed downriver from Trempealeau, and was waiting to go through the Dresbach dam when the boat's power suddenly failed.  They don't know what caused the failure.  Eleven people had to be rescued from the river after the boat overturned...but nobody was seriously injured. Ganrude says the group on the boat was renting it for a week.

Round And Round They Go

Written by


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The rise of the roundabout in Minnesota is helping explain a drop in serious crashes. That's the verdict from state transportation experts, who say that the circular intersections prove safer, more environmentally sound and better for the flow of traffic.

There are 115 roundabouts statewide, with another 39 planned or under construction. They've replaced right-angle traffic crossings. Ken Johnson of the Minnesota Department of Transportation points to the state's first roundabout near New Prague.

Before it went in, the intersection was the site of two deaths and 50 injury-causing accidents in five years. Since the roundabout was installed seven years ago, there have been no fatalities and only four injury crashes. That meshes with federal statistics that show roundabouts reduce fatalities by 90 percent.

More Budget Talks On The Way

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Republican member of the Legislature's powerful budget-writing committee plans to unveil his proposal for overhauling the state's income tax system while also providing an even deeper tax cut than originally put forward by Gov. Scott Walker.

Rep. Dale Kooyenga of Brookfield plans to release his proposal on Tuesday. It comes as the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee is nearing the end of its work making changes to Walker's budget before it heads to the Senate and Assembly for debate.

Walker in February proposed a $343 million income tax cut.
But Kooyenga has said he wants to increase the cut by another $450 million while also doing away with a number of existing tax credits and reduce the number of tax brackets from five to three.

Tick Season Is Here

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota health officials say the wet weather and anticipated warm-up means outdoor enthusiasts are at high risk for ticks.

State epidemiologist Dave Neitzel says the tick season was delayed by a prolonged winter, but is now upon us. He says ticks are so small they can go unnoticed on people and pets. Neitzel says he was hiking just north of the Twin Cities recently and found some ticks.

The latest data from the Minnesota Department of Health shows nearly 15,000 cases of tick-borne diseases were reported from 1986 to 2010. The majority of the cases were Lyme disease.
